Team develops technique to segment carbon nanotube forests in images

Mizzou Engineering researchers are another step closer to controlling the properties of carbon nanotubes growing in mass quantities.

A new view of microscopic processes

With the support of a two-year, $800,000 grant from the National Science Foundation and an additional $300,000 from the university, Matt Maschmann and a team of researchers at MU are purchasing new equipment from Protochips which will allow researchers to conduct scientific experiments while simultaneously viewing reactions as they happen in real time.

Mizzou researchers provide direct evidence of localized explosion of aluminum nanoparticle

A Mizzou Engineering team has provided direct evidence of a localized explosion of an aluminum nanoparticle, a mechanism first theorized in 2006.

Researcher developing new ways to fabricate microprobes, nano electrodes

Mizzou Engineering Assistant Professor Yi Wang is working with collaborators from biomedical engineering, mechanical engineering and the MU School of Medicine to fabricate and provide neuro microelectrodes that can be used to further research around brain activity.

In pursuit of better lithium-ion batteries

From personal electronics to electric vehicles, lithium-ion batteries are used in many technologies today. Yet, these batteries continue to suffer from performance issues. That’s why a team of researchers at the University of Missouri are working to figure out why this is happening.

Building polymers one molecule at a time

A Mizzou Engineering researcher has demonstrated a new method of controlling material behavior by building polymers molecule-by-molecule.

Manufacturers gather at Mizzou to learn about engineering resources

From graduating workforce-ready engineers to partnering on research and development, Mizzou Engineering has a lot to offer mid-Missouri manufacturers. That was the main take-away from an MU Manufacturer Connection Event on Aug. 18.

Mizzou Engineers develop new method to design semiconductors

Mizzou Engineers have come up with a novel new technique to design semiconductors, the chips that make your phones, laptops and other devices not only smart, but also compact.

Research at Mizzou could help reduce cost to build particle accelerators

If Mizzou Engineers are successful, that price tag of particle accelerators such as the Large Hadron Collider could drop drastically.

How to build an ‘explainable AI’ framework to speed the innovation process

More than a century has passed since Thomas Edison developed the first electric light bulb, yet Edison’s hallmark approach of ‘trial and error’ to reach his discovery still remains a large part of today’s inventions. Now, a team of engineers at the University of Missouri is embodying the age-old adage of “work smarter, not harder” by using artificial intelligence (AI).
